Six TAB meetings are held across Australia on this Sunday at Werribee, Hawkesbury, Tatura, Sunshine Coast, Nowra and Pinjarra.

Werribee: Race 7 @ 5:00pm

Tre Dieci will roll forward at a good clip from Rupture while Second Bullet may settle closer in the small field. A case can be made for most runners in a competitive Cup. DOUBLE YOU TEE (2) hasn't missed a place in eight runs this preparation including five wins. He defied the pattern on the day last start to make ground from last down the middle of the track to just miss in the Ballarat Cup after going down narrowly the start prior at Kyneton. He's easy to like. RUPTURE (6) has upgraded his form this preparation and only just missed last week behind the progressive Secret Blaze. Appeals on the minimum weight. ARISTOCRATIC MISS (4) was been up a long time but can't be taken lightly with a Group 2 placing at this distance two starts ago to her credit. THE LORD MAYOR (1) may not get the pace on he needs in the small field but has the class while DANON ROMAN (5) can improve again fourth up. SELECTION: #2 Double You Tee on top in an open Cup.

Hawkesbury: Race 4 @ 3:00pm

Good battle for the early supremacy. ROCKIN' RUGA (1) should take some catching. Condition just gave out late when making his stable debut at Gosford a fortnight ago. Will improve sharply from that. Tom Sherry should stamp him urgent from the wide alley and he's the one they have to beat. BRING THE RANSOM (5) is a horse on the up. Ran them ragged at Goulburn last start. Will provide Ruga with some company on the speed and both should be given every chance. NITRIDE (3) hasn't won for awhile. Got home well last start but this is harder. ROSE OF SAVANNAH (10) best of the remainder. SELECTION: #1 Rockin' Ruga straight out.

Tatura: Race 4 @ 2:50pm

Mistress Molly gets the opportunity to lead. MISTRESS MOLLY (1) runs along and has placed both runs back and keeps improving. Finds easier and is clearly the one to beat with the handy 3kg claim. SHAQUIANA (3) just missed as favourite resuming and then was backed again but plain after. Rates well and is worth another chance. SWIZZLE STICKS (5) ran along and was okay resuming. Gets a 3kg claim and low gate and she will be right in it finding her best. OAMARU (2) is also third-up and has more to offer. Expect her to use the rail. SELECTION: Backing #1 Mistress Molly.

Sunshine Coast: Race 6 @ 4:30pm

Marway and Machu Picchu can make the speed from Catmosphere. LOVE SQUIRRELS (4) matched his best winning the CL4 resuming and then made a ratings spike beaten a head in the 70. Gets the weight drop and pushing forward can win again. MARWAY (3) led and won resuming at Rocky heavily-supported and that stacks up. He has more to give and will take running down. CORAL BAY (1) was a bit plain the latest as favourite off the 80 win but finds easier and a bounce wouldn't surprise. COPYWRITER (6) as also going well enough to be given a chance. SELECTION: #4 Love Squirrels brings the best last start figure and comes to peak.

Nowra: Race 3 @ 3:10pm

Expect a solid pace. SWIDINI (6) gets the nod. Her effort in a Highway last week was terrific. Performed well at this venue in the past. Has plenty in her favour. Should lead and take plenty of beating. WE'RE OFF (5) is peaking third-up. Stuck to the task well when third at Kembla Grange last start. Still learning. Has strong claims if he can repeat his latest effort. DENMISS (2) has been up awhile. Not beaten far in a deep race at Newcastle last Sunday. On the quick back-up and should be strong at the end. SHAKE ON IT (4) next best on resumption. May need the run but he's got ability on his day. SELECTION: Swidini for the win.

Pinjarra: Race 4 @ 5:45pm

Pearl Dancer and Casino War can make the speed. I HOPE YOU DANCE (7) resumes with the top rider booked and has trialled well. Ran her best race missing a lip here four-back on debut with Pike also in the saddle and expect her to be ready and take beating. KITGUM (2) has just missed the last two and is ready to win. Finding a good sport from the wide gate is the query. CASINO WAR (8) also draws out, but returned in good order and has more to give. RAPID TRANSIT (1) has been racing at Ascot and got closer the latest. The draw is also an issue. SELECTION: #7 Hope You Dance wins at best and looks ready to go.
